Album Notes

The Pyronauts are from Auburn, CA and have been together for about 8 years. They have opened for Dick Dale 12 times and continue to annihilate audiences with their rockin' surf tunes everywhere! Other highlights include 14 days at the 2005 California State Fair Beach Party, 1st place in a battle of the bands promoting the movie School of Rock, as well as over 300 other shows! The Pyronauts oftern perform in San Francisco, Sacramento, Reno, and Southern California.


The Pyronauts' music is invigorating and fun. Listen to it while working out to help you get pumped up, while driving to cruise in style, at a party to get the ladies dancing, or when you're feeling down to get a laugh! Surf music is a kick in the pants, and The Pyronauts won't disapoint. Music, in general, has a healing quality, but The Pyronauts brand of surf music takes you to a tropical beach with your toes in the sand and a Mai Tai in your hand! The playful sounds evoke images of surfer girls, warm island sun, and a calm breeze!


Surf and Destroy is the sixth release from The Pyronauts. Surf or Die, A Surfin't Christmas, Surf Motel, Meet The Pyronauts, and Live from the Pit are all previous albums that are extremely hard to find. Surf and Destroy, however, represents the goups finest work. It was recorded on an analog 2" 24 track tape recorder to achieve a warmer more natural sound. This release also marks the bands first all original release.

Phil Dirt

This is a magnificent disc!
Mike's Barracuda ****
Mike's Barracuda is a faster surf track, rhythmic and splashy, with great glissandos. basic surf grumble and power.

Hey Fred! ****
This is a thoroughly flippant and fun piece that's warm and thrilling. It's delicate backtrack writhes with lovely surf reverb while the lead plays a delightful melody. It's a happy go lucky track that's just impossible not to grin with.

Sifaka *****
Sifaka is a splendidly infectious song with a sophisticated structure driven by superb surf rhythms. There are many fine tracks I love from The Pyronauts, but this is perhaps my fave. It portrays mysterious imagery, surf power, and a playful sophistication not common in surf. Superb playing and writing.

Aztec Harry ***
A warm softness emotes from the guitar lines while great drums and bass back it up. The tribal drums dominate the transition passages commendable. Aztec Harry has a bit of a mysterious European sound to it.

Iron Board *****
This classical tribute to Alfred Hitchcock uses the theme to his TV series. Amazingly cool interpretation, with warm island whammy and a solid surf beat. Double picked and liquid!

Necronomicon ex Boardis ****
Surfboard Of The Dead is a splendid surf instro with excellent rhythm and a somewhat optimistic melody line that lurks in the shadows. The psychedelic backwards guitar lines are very cool! This song has grown quite a bit over its life span. A very fine track that I kept coming back to.

Cal-Tiki ****
Cal-Tiki sports a rippin' surf rhythm behind a chunky riff with great drums, cool whammy chords, and dribbling glissandos. Fine track!

Pie *****
A very infectious surf beat grabs you right away as Pie takes off. Double picked, joyous reverb, and a cool melody line. Solid beat and energy, and plenty to make you smile. An excellent track!

Fire ****
Big drama and mysterious happenings open Fire, eventually yielding to a chunkin' surf rhythm and a slightly unsettling melody line. Great drums and infectious guitar work.

Water *****
Slowly starting from a solo guitar line, Water gradually builds to an epic journey at a lumbering pace. The shear size of the visual here is overpowering. Aquatic and magnificent.

Supertanker Surf ****
Cutting through the crests and troughs as if they aren't there, a supertanker would have a hard time shooting the curl, yet Supertanker Surf seems to project just such an image. A playful track with a great thumping bass and lots of dribbling reverb.

Land Of The One-Eyed Tiki ****
Muted reverbed guitar, a bit of an Oriental flair, and a delicate interplay between the guitars. Land Of The One-Eyed Tiki gradually builds to a minor surf frenzy. Superb and unique.
